Originally platted in 1884, the community of Bayard was a busy stopping point for tourists and industry through the early part of the 20th century. Located midway between St. Augustine and Jacksonville, its gift shops, restaurants and places for travelers to stay were a welcome site. Bowing Oaks Plantation is continuing that tradition of hospitality today with its welcoming and comfortable atmosphere.
